At the Children & Young People's Health Partnership (CYPHP), we know that supporting a child or young person's health requires many professionals to work together. As such, below you can find more information on:
- Emotional resilience training: a programme that supports teaching staff to develop emotional wellbeing and resilience among your students.
- Asthma: What is asthma, and top tips on how you can support your students.
Emotional Resilience Training
What is Emotional Resilience training?
In 2016, The Training Effect were commissioned by CYPHP to develop and train professionals, who then delivered a mental health and wellbeing programme across primary and secondary schools in Lambeth and Southwark. The focus of the programme was on healthy development, and supporting emotional wellbeing and resilience amongst children and young people through the use of effective interventions.
Teachers and other professionals working in schools were trained to deliver the programme across a series of classroom sessions. The sessions were designed in complement the developmental capabilities of children and young people in different age groups.
Q1. What is asthma?
Asthma is a condition that affects the lungs. Over time, triggers in the air such as pollens, moulds, animal dander, and dust can cause the airway to become red, sore, and swollen. The airways can also be quite sensitive to other triggers, including:
- Cigarette smoke.
- Heightened emotions.
These triggers can make the airway tighten, making it difficult to breathe.
